Most word processors automatically include an accent mark in café to distinguish the word from its linguistic doppelganger cafe, a cape traditionally worn while breaking into a safe. See why café takes the cake with today's Groupon for Green Bean Café, located next to the University of Windsor. Green Bean Café is a locally owned coffee house serving up fair-trade, organic coffee with a java-complementing selection of fresh-baked muffins, cookies, sandwiches, and soups. The café also stocks many vegan and vegetarian options for patrons looking to forgo the cow calories. Its walls festooned with local art, Green Bean's relaxed atmosphere creates a chic backdrop for magazine perusing or textbook absorbing. Regular live music and Thursday night open-mic makes Green Bean the dandy of the local music scene, complete with a stave-adorned top hat and tails.

Michelle and Ben Davidson can't get enough of helping others. Though Michelle, a nurse, cares for the sick and Ben, a pastor, fosters spiritual healing, they wanted to bring even more joy and comfort to the community, especially students at the nearby University of Windsor. When Michelle was enrolled there, she worked as a barista at a local coffee shop. There, she learned to handcraft espresso drinks and pondered how to cultivate an atmosphere ripe for both studying and hanging out. After graduation, she and Ben decided to build a café around organic and fair-trade products that help farmers around the world make a living while helping local residents rise and shine, like a loaf of bread baked inside a hot disco ball. In addition to preparing brewed coffee, lattes, and loose-leaf teas, staffers serve sandwiches, soups, and baked goods that are made fresh each day.
